ELONGATION OF MAGPIE via original shortlived spin-off called Ace Reports featuring WAYNE “PIPKINS” LAREYA. TOMMY BOYD was still present but this time kicking sides were JIM SWEENEY, STEVE STEEN and a junior MIKE SMITH. Concept was they were running a pirate TV station from a boiler room in the Thames studios, and each week they had to humorously sneak in, past the commissionaire who may well have been Henry Magee. Or maybe not. But he should have been. ANNEKA RICE bagged extra curricular work from TREASURE HUNT as a reporter.
